They are both superb cars that anyone in their right mind would be extremely happy to own. IMO it boils down to $ -- the P-car is a ton more expensive to own in the long run, factoring in maintenance, insurance, resale.... So think about whether you would rather have the 335 and take a trip to the Adriatic coast or Fiji or Chile or wherever once a year vs. having the Porsche.

335 shouldnt have any prob against a 997s
335 with Procede does not make 350 rwhp.

I am afraid you are wrong. The three most impotant Italian car magazines rated the 997s between 4.5 and 4.7 to 62mph while the 335 scored 5.5. all over the board.
US car magazines achieved better results for the 335 (5.1. to 62mph), but also for the 997s (I think R&T even achieved an amazing sub 4 time to 60mph). Therefore, provided procede allow you to improve of 0.3/0.5 sec, the best case scenario for the bimmer is remain side by side to the Carrera.

Big difference between a tip 4S & 6 speed S model. The 4S adds 180+ lbs., not to mention greater driveline losses with 4WD. If they don't know how to launch then that 4WD becomes a hinderance, not advantage in the straightline race. Are you sure you did not run a 325 hp 3.6L from the previous model year ?

Strange if you lose to a Z4M vs. a Carrera 4S, big difference in speed there (12.8-12.9's vs. 13.3's).

it's funny how many of you guys try to use the phrase "335i with a procede can hang with XXX car, and is much cheaper"


reminds me of the topgear episode where the evo mr was sticking with the murcielago.
why dont we all go buy evos then? or an ariel atom since it's "RWD YO!"

want to brag about straight line speed?
mustang gt with a blower.

ZOMG!!! the magazine says I can lap donnington in XX seconds, and do a 0-60 in 4 seconds!!! does it really matter when I'm driving to work?

the 335i has the right balance for me ,not super fast in straights, not super luxurious, not super beautiful, and that's why I want it.

A street race against a stranger is pretty much a worthless comparison. You know nothing about their skill, car, etc. If you actually know the person and stage a street race, then thats a much different story.

Based on trap speed, it would probably take a Stage 1 PROcede to run a with a stock 997S.

Z4m's are nice cars. As for one taking a stage 1 335i. not very likely unless the driver sucks.

A friend of mine just bought one 2 weeks ago and we just did some comparison runs last night.

Ill post the videos later this week, with the rest of the videos I havent posted over the months, since I havent had my car in a while. Just waiting on that new revised stage 1 map











Heres a pic you might wanna see too. 440 rwhp 410 wtq ls2 gto vs my crappy car. I have videos on this too. (day time in fact lol )



Back on topic. On the 997s it a drivers race. I have a few videos of doing runs with my friends when I was just proceded.

Stock 335i, and it seemed like 335i driver wasn't even trying...no wheel/tire spin in M1 on stock RFTs????? I have a feeling he had it in DS and just punched it, which means he started out in 2nd gear. I'd like to see that chipped 911 S vs. a PROcede 335i (with a driver that actually knows how to launch).

Magazines are Important in Italy? I have no clue why people even talk about 0-60 times. It's so lame! It's only a matter of traction in the long run. If you want to know what car is truly faster in a real world Street situation then lets talk about trap speed! I can make my car hook up and gear it to hit 60 mph in 3 seconds but that doesn't mean CRAP!

I think the 997S is a great car. And as said before if you just want a really fast car for the straights then the 335 is fine. In reality you dont need much better handling than the 335 for everyday spirited driving. If you are a track guy than a used Pcar is the way to go.

This is a great site for Pcar stats.

C&D says 4.1 to 60 with the 1/4 passing thru at 12.6 @ 112MPH, those numbers are similar to procede 335, but i believe the procede is trapping @ a higher speed.

A procede car has not trapped higher than 112, I belive only shiv has gone over 110, the rest are 107-109, still very good.

I'll set it up, my buddy has a modded 997S, at Famoso he ran a 12.6 at 111, the procede cars hit 13's at 107 same day, I think it's actually closer than that, we'll do some runs with Sherwin's and Charlie's car soon.
